It came down to the wire on The Voice Monday as the top three artists – Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman – delivered knockout performances.
Kaufman closed out the show with applause that went on so long and so loud that the coaches could barely comment. Singing Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain," the Indianapolis father of three made a case for himself as a masterful soul singer.
"Oh, my," his coach, Usher, enthused, barely audible over the cheers. "Throughout this whole process you have wanted to represent soul and that is precisely who and what you are."

From Las Vegas to Los Angeles, Robin Thicke is working hard to get Paula Patton back.
The singer, 37, will be performing his new song "Get Her Back" at The Voice finale Tuesday night, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
While picking up a prize at the Billboard Music Awards over the weekend, Thicke thanked "my wife for her love and support and for putting up with me all these years" before seemingly dedicating his new track to Patton, whom he separated from in February after nine years of marriage.
"I never should have raised my voice or made you feel so small," he sang. "I should have kissed you longer, I should have held you stronger. I'll wait for forever for you to love me again."

With just one week to go until the finale, the Top Five artists on The Voice learned their fate Tuesday in a semifinal elimination that had the male contestants celebrating and the female singers forced to perform one more time for the last Twitter instant save of the season.
Early in the show, the first save of the night offered a genuine surprise: Host Carson Daly revealed Texas teen Jake Worthington would move on to next week's finals.
The decision had coach Blake Shelton beaming – and probably helped him forget about the pile of manure Adam Levine poured on his precious truck the previous evening.

A popular Disney hit re-imagined as a rock song was not a problem for Kat Perkins, who turned the catchy tune embraced by fans worldwide, "Let It Go," into a head-banging anthem on Monday night's The Voice semi-final.
"You murdered it," said an enthusiastic Usher of Perkins's powerful take on the song from Frozen, which she dedicated to the Keller children for whom she served as nanny, and who watched adoringly from the audience.
"I don't know what I can say anymore. It doesn't get better as far as vocals are concerned," noted her coach Adam Levine.

Some of the strongest artists on The Voice found themselves in the bottom four Tuesday night, which confounded the coaches and forced those singers to perform one more time for the lone Twitter save.
After weeks of deftly avoiding elimination, veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton found themselves in a vulnerable position following Monday night's Top Eight performances when Usher's lone artist, soulful family man Josh Kaufman, and Shakira's only remaining singer, Massachusetts country singer Kristen Merlin, were the first artists to be deemed safe.
A short time later, host Carson Daly revealed Team Adam's teenage dynamo Christina Grimmie also made it through, along with fellow teen and self-professed redneck Jake Worthington of Team Blake.

The Voice introduced its two newest coaches – Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, who teamed up to perform "Hollaback Girl" – on Monday night as the eight remaining artists performed.
Team Adam Levine star Christina Grimmie followed last week's genre-bending Drake cover with another original moment on Lil Wayne's "How to Love."
The audience would not stop cheering. "You should be soaking this up right now," Blake Shelton praised. "You look and sound like a superstar up there."

If there's one of Tori Spelling's former Beverly Hills, 90210 costars who isn't tuning into her dramatic True Tori docureality series, it's most likely Luke Perry.
"I think reality TV sucks for the most part," the veteran actor, 47, said when he sat down with PEOPLE last week.
"It's put so many writers out of business and put so many actors out of work that it's changed the face of entertainment. As a guy who has grown up making his living making primetime television – get that reality s––– out of here and give more writers and actors a chance to make shows that people will watch."

And then there were eight.
The Voice's live elimination show whittled down two artists from the Top Ten Tuesday with the help of America – or at least the Twitterverse – and determined whether Adam Levine and Blake Shelton still have the secret formula for success.
The show kicked off in newsy fashion when host Carson Daly announced that Gwen Stefani will join The Voice's coaching panel next season (just in case you hadn't already read Christina Aguilera's Tweet.) He also revealed that the No Doubt frontwoman will join fellow newbie coach Pharrell Williams onstage for a performance next Monday.
Yet the real news of the show was attempting to figure out who wouldn't be appearing on stage next week, and that became increasingly clear as the show soldiered on. Read on to find out more.

The Voice has finally found its newest judge!
Since the rumors first started that mom-to-be Christina Aguilera would give up her seat on the judge's panel to Gwen Stefani, the show's producers have refrained from confirming the move.
But Aguilera did it for them.
